    Angry Smashed my car last night...

    New front tyres and not paying attention for a split second cost me the front bumper and the bonnet is slightly shifted :-<

    Hit a 60 plate white van, tiny crack on his bumper but left my car looking sh*t.. (Can't open bonnet as it's shifted slightly)

    Anyone selling a facelift SRI front bumper?

    Also can anyone recommend a supplier if I need a new bonnet?

    Only bonus is my brothers a very good experienced panel beater so he should be able to sort it cheap but thought it was worth getting some supplier info.

    Have you had the bumper off? It wouldn't surprise me if the crash bar is flat too

    Sorry to hear about your probs, very nearly happened to me yesterday. Only takes a split second, even at slow speed. Hope you get it sorted.

    You could source a copy / after market version, but would you really want to compromise...
    Check underneath to see if the offside tray is split (you should be able to see this with the bonnet raised)

    I had my original bumper replaced in 2006, claimed on the insurance, and it cost them £380 which included the three trays (which the 3.0 V6 CDTI has and caught the bodyshop out as they originally only received one advising me it would not fit, Ithen advised them to check for one for the correct engine) and rubbing strips

    Someone posted an ebay link for a Facelift bumper the other day, thought of this but couldn't remember who posted and thread title. Could search for ebay/bumper.
